My kids and I love cooking in the kitchen and always have. It’s one of our special times and today I’m sharing some Monster Krispie Cakes that are so easy kids and you can make them together or as they get a little older they can make supervised by you!

This recipe I first tried with my kids when they were toddlers (no pictures of that though as I was too busy helping them stir, weigh and heat up the ingredients) but now they are older as you can see they are great at making these themselves. These make an ideal quick and easy Halloween Treat for kids to make or you to rustle up quickly on the day.

This book which helps children to overcome their fears is cut out so as you read through the monster is revealed and then by magic of not being scared you can make the Big Green Monster go away.
